The San Antonio Spurs have 14 guaranteed contracts committed for this season, so things aren’t looking to0 good for Corey Maggette as it stands.
The 14-years NBA veteran is coming off a rough season with the Detroit Pistons and didn’t receive many offers during the offseason, so this is where he’s at according to a story by Pro Basketball Talk via the San Antonio Express-News.
Corey Maggette says he will retire if he doesn’t make Spurs.
Maggette also said he knew the deal coming in to camp. Knows it will be uphill battle. Had no other offers, thought he’d take a stab.
Corey Maggette: “If I could get an opportunity here, it would be great. If not, this game has been good to me.”
If Maggette does indeed retire, it will conclude what was a productive but seemingly unnoteworthy career.
Hard to believe their aren’t more teams in line for the services of a forward who appears to still be in good shape and gets to the free throw line frequently.
